2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 World-GP 50th Anniversary Edition

Fifty years after Yamaha sent its first ever GP riders to compete in the World Championships, our newest factory rider Ben Spies helped to commemorate the occasion with his maiden Moto-GP win at Essen in June 2011. Riding a YZR-M1 in Yamaha’s specially-designed red and white WGP 50th Anniversary livery, Spies was continuing the strong tradition of winning that has enabled Yamaha to become one of the industry’s most innovative and creative manufacturers.

This is the machine that’s leading the way in the World Super sport Championship. And its highly advanced engine and chassis designs make it one of the most outstanding motorcycles in the class. Our compact ‘mass-forward’ body layout and lightweight aluminum die-cast Delta box frame concentrate major components around the centre of gravity for super-agile handling. The Yamaha YZF-R6 With 599cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, forward-inclined parallel 4-cylinder, 4-valve engine is equipped with a highly advanced electronic intake (YCC-I) and throttle (YCC-T) giving instant response and seamless power. And with its new 50th Anniversary colors, the Yamaha YZF-R6 looks and feels like a born winner!
